The Daily Bell
by Anthony Wile: Real
Reason for Prosecutions of Bodog.com and Megaupload?
We track dominant
social themes here at the Daily Bell, and the spectacular implosion
of the "Stop Kony 2012" campaign is a further example
of how these memes are disintegrating under the pressure of what
we call the Internet Reformation.
on this in this past week, in "Kony
2012 Debunking Shows How Far Alternative Media Has Come."
But we wrote that article before the spectacular implosion of the
"artistic creator" of the video, who apparently had a
nervous breakdown due to the reception of the video and was sent
to a psychiatric facility.
I am not one
to rejoice at this sort of thing. In fact, it is a personal and
familial tragedy for the person involved, obviously. On the other
hand, the video itself was fairly despicable, in my view, and obviously
and evidently the intention was to create a power elite meme.
This is not
idle speculation. Alternative media reports may have firmly fixed
the producers of the video, "Invisible Children," within
the larger framework of the State Department and its infamous AYM
movements" that the power elite has assiduously cultivated
over the past decade or more are responsible for destabilizing numerous
countries around the world now.
Children non-profit seems to me to be firmly entrenched within this
Intel paradigm. No doubt, if their funding stream is analyzed closely
it will emerge that various strands of support lead back to elite
foundations and personalities.
What was the
meme? It was to create a groundswell of support for a kind of neo-colonialist
attack on Africa. Some of what is intended has been clearly elucidated
now by alternative media and some has not.
media, as we have pointed out previously, has been superb in rising
up to denounce the video and the intentions behind it. Alex Jones
led the charge with a hundred maybe a thousand websites
and blog-sites all focusing on the true disinformation inherent
in the "Invisible Children" effort.
of what the video was intended to do have been analyzed by now.
But let me try to sum up in a few sentences:
The video may
be part of a larger power elite plan to take control of the Middle
East and Africa more directly. In the Middle East and upper Africa,
as we've reported many times, the power elite has destroyed a number
of secular regimes (Egypt, Tunisia and Libya) on their way to installing
what seems to be a region-wide Caliphate.
The idea seems
to be to create a wider war on terror by building a Muslim-oriented
Caliphate using the Trojan Horse of the Muslim Brotherhood, which
is apparently CIA connected at the very top. The Kony video is obviously
aimed at providing a wider justification for more African military
involvement by the West.
All the above
actions are CONTROL oriented. There are other reasons, as well,
having to do with gold, with the world's next reserve currency and,
of course, natural resources. Some of these we've pointed out in
the past. But the larger issue is the one-world government that
elites are continuing to pursue.
The moves in
the Middle East and Africa and even the Kony video itself needs
to be looked at within that context. And seen in that context, I
think we can come to certain conclusions.
The main conclusion
we can come to is that the elites' dominant social themes are really
in a kind of free fall now. The elites RELY on these dominant social
themes to organize society and instill belief systems that allow
for the gradual implementation of what has been called a New World
The idea of
a consolidated global government run by the current elite
and at the top it is apparently composed of dynastic banking families
ought to be scary to anyone. Power corrupts and absolute
power corrupts absolutely. A one-world government cannot be anything
other than tyrannical.
But these dominant
social themes, having worked so well in 20th century and even earlier,
have certainly been undermined by the availability of 'Net information.
One by one, they are toppling, or at least losing credibility. I'd
like to think we've contributed to this trend.
global warming, the so-called "war on terror" or various
scarcity memes having to do with food, water and oil, people are
a lot less likely to take what they read and hear from the mainstream
media at face value anymore. There are too many other outlets via
This is why
the powers-that-be have tried to crack down on Internet information
via such ploys as copyright enforcement. It's exactly the same tactic
that was used after the Gutenberg Press began to change the way
people thought about the Way the World Worked.
As we've often
pointed out, this is a big problem for the power elite. Lacking
the ability to propagandize the masses, the elites have turned to
more brutal techniques. They are trying to accomplish via the brute
force of law and regulation what they cannot accomplish via the
propagation of memes.
the elites have increasingly turned toward and encouraged, in my
mind, economic disintegration. The idea is to make people so miserable
and insecure via "austerity" and various wars that we
will simply cry out for "order" at any cost. At that point,
world government will start to become a reality.
But wait just
a minute. As far as I'm concerned, however, "Kony 2012"
and the pushback it has received mark a kind of watershed moment
for the Internet. There have been several I recall.
One was when
Dan Rather was fired after the Internet exposed the phony documents
he was trying to use to attack then US President George Bush. I
have no admiration for Bush, who was a deliberate war-monger, but
Rather was rightfully caught.
moment, in my view, was the "ClimateGate" exposure of
emails that showed fairly convincingly that global warming was a
contrived hoax. The "movement" has never recovered from
very recent, watershed moment has been the unraveling of the case
against Dr. Andrew Wakefield who first identified a potential link
between autism and the MMR vaccine. One of Dr. Wakefield's colleagues
just had disbarment from the British medical establishment reversed.
But the rapid
and seemingly complete collapse of the Kony gambit must rank as
the most astonishing yet in my view. The anger of seemingly the
entire alternative media community is palpable and the "nervous
breakdown" of the man who made the video when see in this light
is perhaps no accident. They're under enormous pressure.
will continue to do what they do. They've been doing it for thousands
of years apparently, and the exposure of their thematic mechanisms
won't stop them from trying to achieve their goals.
But above all
the elites seek justification for what they do, and the Internet
regularly strips these self-serving and manufactured justifications
away from them.
the brutality of planned depressions, manufactured wars and unjust
laws supported by crony favoritism. How long they can manufacture
consent via fear rather than conviction remains to be seen.
There is a
reason that the elites counted on the dissemination of their memes
in the 20th century. There are a lot fewer of them than us.
Maybe at some
point, as the Internet Reformation rolls onward, the top tier of
elites the powerful banking families themselves will
see fit to take a step backward. This won't be something done within
a vacuum, of course. They will have to be convinced it is in their
own self-interest to keep a lower profile.
It could happen,
in my view. Perhaps it already is.
